CalArts Center for New Performance (CNP) and Duende CalArts proudly presents Shelter, a movement-based theatrical performance that shares stories of the massive human crisis of unaccompanied minors crossing the U.S. border and passing through the U.S. deportation shelter system, unraveling the painful truths of immigration. Shelter was written and conceived by Marissa Chibas and directed by Mexico City-based director Martin Acosta.

The world premiere of Shelter took place in 2016 as a site-specific performance in East Los Angeles’ Lincoln Park. That summer it was presented at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. (see the full-length video below). The project continues in the form of theatrical presentations, civic engagements, and the 2019 premiere of a documentary short film.
